The Burial, Resurrection from the dead and Ascension into Heaven of Jesus Christ
 
Joseph of Arimathea went to the Praetorium to ask Pilate for Christ's body. The tomb used for His burial was only about 130 feet from Calvary.On the third day after His death, Christ rose from the tomb. The Scriptures relate eight appearances of Christ before His Ascension, which occured forty days after the Resurrection. The first apparition occured at the entrance to the tomb before Mary Magdalen, the second was to the holy women on the road back to the City from the tomb. The third was to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, the fourth to the Apostles gathered in the Cenacle, and again when Thomas was present. The sixth was to the seven disciples by the Sea of Galilee, the seventh on a mountain in Galilee, thought to be Mount Tabor. The final appearance, 40 days after the Resurrection, was to the Apostles in Jerusalem just a few hours before His Ascension into Heaven from Mount Olivet, where was surrounded by His Apostles and a number of the disciples.

(The Two Patricks in County Tyrone, Ireland, are writing a series of books on the life and times of Jesus and they are a really excellent read - the first two are published under the titles of Song of The Carpenter I & II. Well worth buying and excellent for schools for Religious Instruction) Below are the biblical references for the various events according to each evangelist.

Under our section on The Bible we have attempted to give a 'potted history' and some explanations around divine inspiration, translations and interpretation. In order to make your reading of the New Testament teachings of the Life of Christ a little easier we have looked at the time of Jesus from His Conception to His Ascension according to the writings of the four evangelists, and categorised the various events and teachings with reference to the chapter and verse of each writer. 

We start with Jesus' Infancy & Childhood; then move on to the start of Jesus' Public Ministry. There is no historical proof of actual times available but we have used the Douay Challoner version to divide the three years of Jesus' ministry as His First Year of Public Ministry; His Second Year of Public Ministry; His Third Year of Public Ministry; the events leading into His time of betrayal and suffering during Holy Week; the events surrounding Holy Thursday when He instituted the bloodless sacrifice of the Eucharist to be carried out in His name for perpetuity; the events surrounding His suffering, passion and death on Good Friday; and finally His Burial, Resurection and Ascension into Heaven.


Moytura has several other sites with a 'Christian flavour'. Prayerful Thoughts & Thoughtful Prayers is a little collection of prayers and thought-provoking stories, and a few links to some other really nice websites. Reflections for Lent offers a daily meditation for the 40 days of lent and the week leading into Easter. As part of my Journey section of the website join me to learn a little of the Early Christian Church in Ireland by visiting Clonmacnoise, founded by St. Ciaran on the banks of the River Shannon in the 6th. Century. Read about Saint Brendan the Navigator who started a Monastic settlement in the tiny village of Clonfert in the 6th century, located on the Galway/Offaly/Tipperary border. Travel on my journeys to two of Canada's most famous Catholic Shrines - Saint Anne de Beaupré and Cap de la Madeleine, both on the shores of the Saint Lawrence river in Quebec. Finally I welcome you to come with me to see a little of Medugorje, a peaceful haven in a war-torn country - Bosnia-Herzogovina. Please also pay a visit to  Moytura's Irish Bookshop where you can find books on the history of Christianity in IrelandIrish Prayers and Celtic Christianity
